The Bombay High Court has issued letters to the Pune Municipal Corporation, Municipal Commissioner Mahesh Zagade, the State Government, Department of Town Planning and a builder inquiring the construction at the foothills in Baner.
The notices come after a PIL by the Baner Citizens' Forum.
Forum President, retired Lt. Col. Ashok Thombre said that building of a commercial project is on at survey no 1 and 6 in Baner. Widespread excavation is being conducted, eating up the slant.
The forum had sent an e-mail to explain Zagade of the matter few months back.
